```1915]     HYDRODYNAMIGA.L PROBLEMS SUGGESTED  BY PITOT'S  TUBES         331
branches along y = ±tr. From as = — oo to « = — 1, the flow is along the inner side of the walls, and from as — —l to # = - oo back again along the outer side. At the turn the velocity is of course infinite.
We see from (4) that when -^ is given the difference in the final values of y, corresponding to infinite positive and negative -values of cf>, amounts to TT, and that the smaller is ty the more rapid is the change in y.
The corresponding values of as and y for various values of \$, and for the stream-lines -^ = — 1, — £, - J, are given in Table I, and the more important parts are exhibited in the accompanying plots (fig. 1).

In the second form of the problem we suppose, after Helmholtz and Kirchhoff, that the infinite. velocity, at the edge,-encountered when the fluid adheres to the wall, is obviated by the formation of a surface of discontinuity where the condition to be satisfied is that of constant pressure and velocity. It is, in fact, a particular -case of one treated many years ago by Prof. Love, entitled "Liquid flowing against a disc with an elevated rim," when the height of the rim is. made infinite*. .lam indebted to Prof. Love for the form into which the solution then degrades. The origin 0' (fig. 2) of cc + iy or z is taken at one edge. The central stream-line (^ = 0) follows the line of symmetry AB from y = + cctoy = — oo. At i/ = - oo it divides, one half following the inner side of the wall GO' from y = —<x> to y = 0, then becomes a free surface O'D from y = Q to y = — oo. The connexion between
